Summary: They say you should never meet your heroes, as you'll only ever be disappointed. I think the same thing can be said for videogames that have accrued over a decade of expectations and hype. If you never play it, at least in your mind it will always be everything you ever wanted. If you play Duke Nukem Forever , you'll be slapped in the face by reality.
Conclusion: It may go down as one of biggest anticlimaxes in gaming, but don’t expect too much of it and you might enjoy it. I for one am going back to play it again, at least on PC. And besides, I’m sure Duke 5 will be the greatest game ever made .
Excerpt: So, after 14 years in development, Duke Nukem Forever actually happened. I was a virginal, bespotted 11-year-old when the game was originally announced in 1997, desperately eager for a continuation of the off-colour humour and explorative design I adored in Duke Nukem 3D.

The game comes 12 years after the previous game, which was a huge favorite of gamers. Duke Nukem Forever (DNF) was developed by 3D Realms and released by 2K Games on the PC, Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.
Excerpt: It has been 15 years since the last Duke Nukem game hit store shelves. Fans have eagerly anticipated the release of Duke Nukem Forever since it was unveiled to the public in 1997, only to be disappointed by delays and financial trouble for the developer. Despite the lengthy development cycle, Duke Nukem Forever has finally arrived.
Excerpt: It's important to remember something any time you put a disc in your PlayStation 3, grip your controller and prepare yourself for what you are about to experience: games are supposed to be games. They can be other things that today's gamer seems to crave--artistic, profound and meaningful--but at the end of the day, video games exist as a medium because people saw how cool video was and they figured it was high time interactive entertainment evolved to take advantage of...
